    Default Trivia Help Please...

    There was a trivia question in the papers today which I just can't finish.

    The question was, 'Name 3 England strikers that have 3 x O's in their surname'.

    So far I can think of 2. Peter Osgood & Tony Woodcock.

    Can any 1 guess the 3rd...?(doin' mi head in!)

    The only player I can find with three 'O's in their surname that played for England other than the ones you have mentioned is Ian Storey-Moore.

    WEDNESDAY 14TH JANUARY 1970

    INTERNATIONAL

    ENGLAND V. HOLLAND

    PREVIEW

    Holland were appearing, at Wembley, for the first time,
    apart from a wartime international, with Belgium, in 1941.
    They had lost, 8-2, to England, at Leeds Road, Huddersfield,
    in 1946, and had not beaten them, in four meetings. England
    had won, 1-0, in Amsterdam, just two months earlier. Holland
    had not qualified, for a World Cup, since 1938.

    THE MATCH

    Holland greatly impressed, with their possession
    football, and neat passing, but the World Champions incurred
    the wrath, of the home supporters, for their failure, to
    overcome the emerging Dutch talent.

    ENGLAND 0-0 HOLLAND

    ENGLAND HOLLAND
    Banks STOKE CITY Van Beveren
    Newton EVERTON Drost
    Cooper LEEDS UNITED Israel
    Peters WEST HAM Eijkenbroek
    J.Charlton LEEDS UNITED Krol
    Hunter LEEDS UNITED Jansen
    Lee MANCHESTER C. Rijnders
    Bell MANCHESTER C. Van Hanegem
    Jones LEEDS UNITED Keizer
    R.Charlton MANCHESTER U. Van Dijk
    Storey-Moore * NOTTINGHAM F. Cruyff
    SUBS:- Mullery TOTTENHAM SUBS:- Muhren
    for Lee for Rijnders
    Hurst WEST HAM Veenetra
    for Jones for Van Hanegem

    * First cap.

    - Johann Cruyff appeared, at Wembley, for the first time. He
    was European Footballer of the Year, the following year,
    and by 1974, he had become the first, to win it three
    times.

    Holland were on the fringe, of great success. They took
    Europe by storm, in the 1970's, with their "total football".
    Their club sides, notably Ajax Amsterdam, dominated the
    European Cup, for four years. The national team qualified,
    for the 1974 World Cup, demolishing all before them,
    including reigning World Champions, Brazil, to reach the
    final. There they met a very professional West German team,
    in Munich, and lost, 2-1, despite taking a first minute lead.
    In hindsight, the Wembley crowd had been a little harsh.
